VALDOSTA — Thank you to the young lady that paid for my 95-year-old mother’s groceries last week at Save-A-Lot. You brightened her day!

Thank you to W. G. Nunn for having their open house at night when parents can attend. I am looking forward to working with the teachers and new principal.

Thank you so very much to the person in a black Mercedes who bought our breakfast at Zacadoo’s. It was a lovely thing to do and we will pay it forward. Thank you!

Thank you to Teresa Cason for your kind words for the Valdosta State Prison staff in a recent “Letter to the Editor.” It is not often we are recognized for doing this job. Your gesture was not unnoticed.

A big rave to Smith Northview Hospital. I have been out there twice and the surgical unit has been so nice. They even call you the next day to see how you are doing and even send you a card. I rave for Smith Northview Hospital.

A big rave to Dr. Zeigler and staff at SGMC. I had to have emergency surgery and they all treated me very kindly. Thank you very, very much. You all did a great job!

A big God bless to the three young men who helped push my vehicle out of the intersection of Gornto and Baytree road on Monday during rush hour traffic. I will pay it forward. Thank you very much.

 I want everybody to know I bought some great local honey called Honey Bell Farms from Mama June’s. It has really helped with my allergies. Thanks to Honey Bell Farms for putting local honey back in the market for this area.

We decided on short notice to have Fazoli's cater a lunch for eight employees. The order taking, preparation and pick-up were flawless. The general manager has a wonderful and competent staff and we want to thank him for the great food and great service. We will definitely use Fazoli's again!

    To the ranter about the A/C in the jails, you are 100 percent right. The male and females should be treated equal. Neither side should have any A/C. If I am struggling to put gas in the car to get to work to put food on my family’s table and not running our A/C to keep down our living cost then why should those parasites get their three squares a day, cable TV and A/C? Put them in tents and pink outfits and feed them PB&J that comes out of their own funds. Yes, just like Sheriff Joe out in Arizona.

    It seems people in this town, and especially those in my church are not happy unless they are complaining about something. Today’s earth-shaking rant is that the choir members are too noisy when they change into their robes before the Mass. Give it a rest or you won’t have a choir.

    Funny, the people criticizing immigrants coming here looking for a better life for their family, are only here because their ancestors immigrated here for a better life for their family.

    Of the proposed 75 million that is needed to teach the students of Lowndes County for one school year, 55 million of that goes towards salaries. I don't want to hear no complaints about teachers salaries or furloughs again.

    Is it another sign of the times that people are too lazy to send thank you notes? I’ve bought four wedding gifts and two baby shower gifts since April 1. To date, I've received just one thank you note. It’s just good manners!

    It cracks me up when people say they don't want to be in a business or location where people are carrying weapons. My husband is a police officer and when he's off duty, he always carries concealed. I have a strong feeling that you might be happy one day that one of the hundreds of off duty officers are "packing" if you ever have a need for them!

    People rant on here, but don't bother to attend the County Commission's meeting about the tax increase. I bet you don't vote either. If not, you forfeit your chance to gripe. Just hush!

    Some hillbillies have more money than you do, they just don't flaunt it. Most are hard working, good people, unlike the wealthier, selfish, spoiled, inconsiderate brats. You can lose all your money and education in a blink of an eye. Be thankful God has allowed you to be or have what you do and treat others as you want them to treat you.

    Bring back Ronald Reagan, he cut taxes and only raised the federal debt limit 17 times to do it!

    It’s a shame to work for someone who gripes all the time. Never a “How are you” or “Thanks for your hard work!”
